Those steps, she says, are: move to an automated strategy, focus on asset management as a core strategy and implement risk refactoring – “understand the business context of what’s happening in your organization so you can prioritize work."

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Arif discusses:

  • The difference between vulnerability management and vulnerability response;
  • What healthcare organizations aren’t getting right today;
  • The role of artificial intelligence and machine learning in more effective and timely responses to vulnerability threats.

Arif is senior advisory solutions architect, security and risk, at ServiceNow. She has a diverse background including technical consulting, sales engineering and technical marketing in the areas of security operations, vulnerability management, threat intelligence, governance, risk and compliance, and identity and access management.
